    Absolutely fantastic. Food and cocktails were gorgeous. We were evacuated for an unexpected fire alarm and this was safely dealt with and without any request a reduction on the bill We booked again for another visit as we left as so impressed

    One of the better meals we’ve had there in the while. We’ll be back. Kids options solid and service quick and efficient.

    We have visited Parker’s Tavern many times since it opened. It was really great prior to the pandemic. When it re-opened after the pandemic, we found the service really poor but put it down to teething issues. We’ve been 4 or 5 times since, including this Father’s Day. They have improved, but service still falls short of expectations for a relatively expensive restaurant. The serving staff brought us the meals for another table and only realised their error after one dish had been in front of my husband for 3 or 4 minutes. They brought our children adult portions of the roast. They then sold us soft whip plain vanilla ice cream with no sauce or toppings of any kind as an “ice cream sundae” (misleading) for £9. They then brought us a glass of red wine that was meant for the table next to us. Quite a few basic mistakes you rarely see at cheaper restaurants.

    We returned to the University Arms Hotel after 24 years having held our wedding there in 2000 - we had indicated we were celebrating our anniversary but they could not have made it more special - so welcoming, kind and wanting to recognise our occasion in a special way

    Excellent setting , ambience and surroundings. We had the Sunday Roast Beef which was very good although vegetables perhaps a little too al dente and it could have been warmer. Drinks are on the expensive side ,£14 for one glass of Sauvignon blanc we thought a bit steep but the house option was perfectly drinkable and much more reasonably priced. A lager was brought to the table in a can which also raised our eyebrows! All in all would go again though.

    This restaurant lives up to its reputation. The staff is exceptionally professional and pleasant. The food is excellent. The variety of dishes and drinks make for a fine feast and prices reasonable. It’s truly British cuisine at its finest.

    Lovely environment and waiting staff but the new menu was a bit limited with some fussy options. Smoked butter was not nice and the sourdough crust was very very tough. Nice dessert choices but 2 of our group would have liked to have a couple of scoops of ice cream (with a choice of flavours) but only an ice-cream sundae was available.
